I made these over the last few months for my Addies, DPs and crochet hooks.  No sewing here, they are all needle felted.  The outside is wool and it is lined with commercial felt.  I needle felted the sizes on each pocket.  I love this detail because it allows me to grab the needles I need in seconds!  But my shining accomplishment has to be the magnetic snap closure.

These are great!!  I tried sewing my own needle cases, but they kind of suck...I wish I had thought of felting!

Wow, those are absolutely gorgeous! And labeling them with the needle sizes was just inspired...

great job i just finished mine. But that's a good idea to number them, I think I will too! How did you pack the circular ones? {the pockets mostly?}
